The Connected Road at MMCA
This participatory exhibition started from a road painting by a young artist with learning difficulties, Donghyun Kim ; one of the artists in “Rawside”. He is a specialist in drawing roads. His roads are very detailed and follow logical patterns.
Grape Lab collaborated with him in a sustainable way in terms of materials and participation . Wasted cardboard boxes became the perfect canvas for the road painting. Disassembled boxes were big enough and informal structures of the shapes were beautiful and well matched with the complicated road shapes.
The informal structures made many branches of roads, so many audience members could engage to link the road together simultaneously.
